This review is from: ASUS H87M-PRO LGA 1150 Intel H87 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 uATX Intel Motherboard
Pros: Feature-loaded micro-ATX H87
Lots of USB3 ports, small in size, great features. Stable as a rock and using all 4 memory slots. Using the latest BIOS and the UEFI BIOS is actually quite easy and useful. Love the extra eSata ports and the PCI express 3.0 slot. lots of display option; HDMI, DisplayPort, DV-ID, VGA.
1 x PCIe 3.0/2.0 x16 (x16 mode, yellow)
1 x PCIe 2.0 x16 (x4 mode, dark brown) *1
2 x PCIe 2.0 x1
6 x SATA 6Gb/s port(s); Support Raid 0, 1, 5, 10
Lots of Back I/O Ports and a bunch more Internal I/O Ports
Cons: I wish it had even more Sata ports...(but now I am dreaming...)
Other Thoughts: This board has been ROCK solid since the day I got it. It is running in a server configuration and it's been all good. Made the Haswell experience awesome.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: The product is covered by 1 year part and labor warranty.
Consistently read and write speeds.
Nice quality enclosure, unit looks nice, little to no added noise over the noise of the disks. Works as advertised.
Look is clean and classic black, nice.
Cons: Screw less mounting of drives would be nice.
No blue light for fan and bigger fan for cooling might be a nice option.
Other Thoughts: I would buy another unit any day. This is a good solid unit for the price. Worked with my e-Sata port not problem. (Intel MB)READ FULL REVIEW
This review is from: LIAN LI PC-V352B Black Aluminum MicroATX Desktop Case
Pros: Craftsmanship is quite high; Great looking black finish brush aluminum; Fan are fairly quiet and adjustable; Lots of options for placing additional components / drive / DVD / other.
Love the Thumb Screw design.
Love the SD card reader
USB3 connectors, which in my case I can use.
I added a Corsair H50 liquid cooling in this unit.
Cons: This is a mATX case and I wished it would have an extra 1mm here and there.
Cable management is tight. Should have a bit better cable management and space for disk drive bay and 5.25" Optical Drive Mounting Cage due to perpendicular placement.
Other Thoughts: I am happy with my choice.READ FULL REVIEW
